Some platforms arrange for cpu caches to be flushed on power-fail. On
those platforms there is no requirement that the kernel track and flush
potentially dirty cache lines. Given that we still insert entries into
the radix for locking purposes this patch only disables the cache flush
loop, not the dirty tracking.

Userspace can override the default cache setting via the block device
queue "write_cache" attribute in sysfs.
